Go to C:\, type "attrib -r -s -h boot.ini".  You can then view it as a text file.

it is always located at the root of your c: drive. If you are having dual os assuming win98 and win2000, it is at the partition of your win98 hdd.

FIY it is a hidden file.

tomzhang3m,

please do not edit your question. It is more appropriate to post your follow up comment if you need to add any further info about your question.

Just tried to search for the file from your logical hdd using the search option. IMHO, the boot.ini doesnt exist if you are running in a single os (win2000 only). I am not sure of it. But if it does exist, you should be there like what i have mention

tomzhang3m, the boot.ini file doesn't record anything, it just determines how the system will boot and nothing more.

Is there something in particular you are looking for, such as a log file or event logging etc?

Yes, I can't find the boot.ini in a single windows 2000 system. I confuse how can I edit the text "Windows 2000 professional" on the boot screen.
Thanks all for the previous comments.

What screen that you are refering to. Is it from the win2000 os loader? It is in boot.ini.

tomzhang,

This article in the MSKB will help you with the boot.ini file, which is located in the root of your hard drive and which is a hidden file.

Use the search feature in Windows 2000 to locate the boot.ini and then open it with Notepad to edit it.
